- more information on sensory issues

- advice on multi-professional working

- guidance on developing positive working relationships with parents and carers

'Martin Hanbury has made another valuable contribution to our understanding of how Autism impacts on the learner in the classroom and in the whole school environment. His book will help school staff to create a more positive and interactive learning experience for pupils with Autism. In particular, Chapter 2, "The Impact of Autism on Learning" demonstrates how school staff can, by focussing on those critical elements of the learning and thinking styles of our pupils that are often missed, improve the educational experience and outcomes. I would recommend this book to school staff new to autism as well as to more experienced staff who wish to reflect on and improve their practice' -

Jim Taylor, Director, New Struan School, Scottish Autism

'Children on the autism spectrum perceive the world differently, they think and process information differently and therefore need to be taught differently. This book is aimed at classroom practitioners and translates theory into practical strategies. It is easy to read, full of helpful suggestions and the 'key points for reflection' enable staff to develop their practice. This book can be used by individuals, as a basis for group discussion or as a 'workbook' for continued professional development. Highly recommended' -
Dr Jacqui Ashton Smith, Principle, National Autistic Society Helen Allison School

'Martin Hanbury has, once again, drawn upon his wealth of knowledge and experience to produce one of those rare books that links theory to practice in a thoughtful and accessible way. I am sure this new edition of Educating Children on the Autistic Spectrum will become essential reading for teachers, students and academics alike' -
